Thanks for looking comments always welcome

No matter how nice this box looks I would still take all of your chips if we were to do battle in a hold’em game.
Well done.

Very nice, the wood combination is spot on.

Very nice use of contrasting woods. Also, like the hinges.

Another nice looking chip box Jimboe. I am beginning to worry about your need for all those chips though. Is there a problem …possibly an addiction? All joking aside, the box turned out great. Have you ever made a chip box with a space for a deck or two of cards? Thanks for sharing.

Very nice craftsmanship, the different woods look great together and the finishing job looks spot on. Are those hinges spring-loaded, or have detents or something, to keep the box shut when not in use or transporting?
